The ideas of Jacques Lacan are, alongside the work of Roland Barthes, Michel Foucault, Jacques Derrida and Gilles Deleuze, essential for understanding our modernity. While homages and exhibitions have already been dedicated to these intellectual figures, the thought of Lacan has not been dealt with in museums to date, even though he was strongly attached to works of art.

While homages and exhibitions have already been dedicated to these intellectual figures, the thought of Lacan has not been dealt with in museums to date, even though he was strongly attached to works of art, to the point of buying Gustave Courbet’s famous painting, L’Origine du Monde.

Exhibition catalogue - Elmgreen & Dragset. Bonne Chance

The catalogue, the first work in French devoted to the work of Elmgreen & Dragset, offers a new perspective on the duo's work. Richly illustrated by a photographic campaign carried out during the exhibition at the Centre Pompidou-Metz, it features a lengthy interview with the artists conducted by Chiara Parisi and two essayS, by philosophers Quill R. Kukla and Emanuele Coccia. Quill R. Kukla approaches the exhibition through the lens of gamification, in particular the way in which space controls and sculpts our movement, our perception and even our capacity to act, without our being aware of it. This text explores the everyday environments recreated by Elmgreen & Dragset to reveal how architecture and urbanism regulate our lives, as if we were participating in a huge game. Emanuele Coccia will question the irony and absurdity inherent in Elmgreen & Dragset's work, for whom the reproduction of reality highlights the strangeness inherent in any banal experience. Absurdity is thus no longer the measure of the unbearability of existence, but a detail that enables normative logic to be overturned. The book will be concluded by an illustrated chronology of the 30 major exhibitions of Elmgreen & Dragset.
